Swayfield Coffee Corner February 2016

Why don’t you believe me?
I’ve told you this before,
When you’ve been to Coffee Corner,
You’ll soon be back for more!

With chairs and tables all laid out,
And cups and saucers clinking –
“How much will this cost me?”
You’ll be excused for thinking.

Just one pound – no more, no less,
I’ll say this very clearly,
For as much as you can drink and eat,
You’re welcome – most sincerely!

Come on over and you will find great coffee, plenty of biscuits and treats, good company and lots of chat in the warm, comfortable environment of Swayfield’s Village Hall.

No raffles or other distractions and your £1 buys you unlimited coffee, tea and nibbles. A perfect opportunity for you to meet old friends, make new ones. Whether you are young or not so young, from the Village or wherever – you can be sure of a warm welcome.

The dates for February are Friday 5 and 19 from 10.30 till noon. So what are you waiting for? Just grab your hat and coat and come over.

I look forward to seeing you soon – Marilyn

Swayfield Coffee Corner

Christmas is over,
The New Year’s begun,
The weather is cold
But it’s time to have fun.

If you fancy a biscuit,
Or maybe a cake,
A cup of fresh coffee –
I bet you can’t wait.

You know where to head for,
You’ve been there before,
There’s plenty of chatter
And laughter galore.

That’s right – Coffee Corner,
At your Village Hall.
Get there quite early
And you’ll have a Ball!

We can’t wait to see you,
To give you good cheer
And to welcome you in
With – “A Happy New Year!”

Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain

On the afternoon of Sunday 15th November a number of people were seen entering Swayfield Village Hall in 1940’s period dress. There were ladies dressed as Land Girls, dressed in pinafores, one in furs, others in headscarves. There were gents in Zoot Suits; one, a spiv-like character with Trilby hat and thin moustache, had an armful of wrist watches and nylon stockings for sale.

Why? I hear you ask. Well, it was first to have “Tea & Cakes” served from the best bone china before being treated by the Fol Espoir Theatre Group to a hilarious production of “Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain”.

Swayfield Xmas Fair – Cake Stall

A big Thank You to all those good ladies of Swayfield who baked and donated cakes for us to sell on the Cake Stall of the Swayfield Xmas Fair in November.

There was a terrific selection of all varieties of scrumptious cakes which were rapidly bought by the throng of people who had turned out to support the Fair. Profits from the fair go towards the Xmas parties for the Seniors and Children of the Village.

The Cake Stall was a sell out – a great success – and realised around £150 toward the fund.

Thanks to Kay and her brilliant grand-daughters Phoebe and Abbi and their friend Neave for helping me organise and run the stall.

But thanks also to all you good people who supported us and bought the cakes – I’m sure you have enjoyed them!
